    I am curious how widespread this might be and wondering if others are just dealing with them or exchanging their 2520.
    For the record I was not looking for them until I spotted the first one using while using the Twitter app.

    Just curious...why would you deal with bad hardware when something as small as a tablet is easy to exchange?

    I have already exchanged one unit for very bad backlight bleed and something up with the power that has caused cold resets.

    My issue is that I have played this game before. 8 Surface Pro, 6 PlayBook, 2 Lumia 1020, 2 BlackBerry Q10, 2 Surface 2 and now so far 2 Lumia 2520.
    I have found that it turns into a trade-off game real quick.

    You must be horribly unlucky! I have had to switch out a few things before, but not that many. That said, the retailer/maker owes it to you to give you a perfectly working device. I would keep exchanging until it worked fine or the return window closes (which I would then return the device).

    I went through 3 Nokia Lumia 900s and 3 Nokia Lumia 920's. It is very frustrating, but I also went through 3 ipads though

    Yeah, my pro 2 has a few dead pixels. It doesn't bother me a lot, but maybe later, I will have Microsoft replace the display (not the glass, the display).

    I'm sorry to hear this. I was thinking of getting one of these but screen issues drive me crazy. It used to be just bad pixels I would check for. Now in addition to all the things the average person might notice like low brightness, poor contrast and narrow viewing angles, I'm checking for unusual backlight bleed, lousy color saturation, twitchy/jumpy touch screens, lack of gorilla glass (Sony), and graininess in solid colors from the diffusion layer. With OLED displays I have to look for splotches, crude gradients and pentile side-effects. The Surfaces added yellow blotches on white due to overheating. I wish everyone noticed what we do so manufacturers would have to refine their designs.

    If I ever start me support group for people traumatized by failure in the search for a perfect display, I will send you an invitation.
